Reno Omokri, the former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that Nigeria became the poverty capital of the world under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration because the president “loves extreme poverty.”
This was in reaction to claims by Festus Keyamo, spokesman of Buhari Campaign Organisation that the president loves the poor.
Keyamo in a tweet wrote: “The nightmare of PDP since 2003! The demystifier of old power-blocs! The slayer of the corrupt! The friend of the poor! The one the thieves love to hate! My guy!”
Reacting, Omokri, in a tweet said Nigeria became the headquarters of poverty due to Buhari’s love for the poor.
He wrote: “@FKeyamo is correct when he calls President @MBuhari ‘friend of the poor’.
“President Buhari loves the poor so much, he DOUBLED their number in just 4 years. Not only does he love the poor, he loves EXTREME POVERTY and made Nigeria its headquarters #BuhariFriendofPoverty.”
